They already have guest stars. While it may seem like they have been around for a long time now, AEW’s Dynamite has rapidly become appointment viewing for wrestling fans. The show is now getting some incredible attention in a hurry and it has become a place where a lot of wrestlers and wrestling personalities want to go. Next week, they are already going to have a guest star.

AEW Vice President Cody has announced on Twitter that Taz will be a guest announcer on next week’s episode of AEW Dark. Taz made his name in Philadelphia as a part of ECW and next week’s show will be taking place in Philadelphia. After his in-ring career ended, he went on to do commentary for both WWE and Impact Wrestling. There is no suggestion that this is anything more than a one off appearance.

Taz has made a big debut before. Check out his first WWE match:

Opinion: This isn’t going to be a game changer but it might bring a few other eyes onto Dark. The show is still brand new and having a somewhat prominent name show up could get some attention on it. I don’t know how big of a star Taz can be considered, but he is a name and people might watch the show, or at least hear about it, because he mentions his appearance. It’s not like it could hurt anything and it could make things better, so why not?

Did you watch the first episode of Dark? Will you be watching going forward? Let us know in the comments below.
